My wife and I recently visited Washington, D.C. for a week. Knowing we would be walking around outdoors a lot, I searched for a hat to protect my bald head from the sun. I found a Boston baseball cap that I had forgotten I owned.
We left for our trip a week after the Boston Marathon bombings. The tragedy was still fresh in the minds of the American people. Every time I put on the hat, it reminded me of what happened in Boston. No one commented to me about the hat, but I wonder how many people saw it and reflected back on the deaths that had occurred the previous week.
Jesus has given us the Lord’s Supper as a reminder of his death. Every time we partake of this meal, we have the chance to reflect on the fact that Jesus willingly laid down his life as a substitute for our lives.
“…Do this in remembrance of me.”—Luke 22:19.
